About the employer

experienced Ofsted registered childminder, graded Outstanding at my last inspection, June 2017.

I have 2 children of my own aged 15 & 16 both at secondary school.
We live in Bromley, close to both Bromley North and Sundridge Park stations.

I run a busy setting and work with 2 assistants. We go on lots of outings to enrich our learning experiences of the world around us, as well as doing a variety of activities at home to encourage educational and developmental skills through play.
Although we are busy, we are still a home from home setting, where children are nurtured and cared for in the home environment. We provide home cooked meals and snacks, and each child has their own room/private space for naps.

We have an allotment close by, where we grow our own fruit, veg and flowers. The children love to be involved, they can dig, water, plant and get messy!
